You need to replace the agitator dogs. Yes, there is such a thing. This is a very simple repair that should take 30 minutes or less. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r823955-replacing_agitator_dogs

The dogs are located under the Auger (thats the top portion of the agitator). They are plastic teeth that act as a clutching mechanism for driving the auger during the wash cycle. Over time they simply wear out. The part number is included in the link I provided. You can purchase replacements at appliancepartspros.com for about $5.

If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Is the thing in the middle suppose to twist the clothes around or is it held in loosely?


you may be talking about the agitator. if it is a one piece it should not move if you stop the washer while in wash cycle. if you stop it at spin it may move. if you have a 2 part agitator it should move ONLY TO ONE SIDE AND LOCK ON THE OTHER. if it move both ways you need to replace what is called "THE DOGS" inside the agitator.

WHIRLPOOL TOP LOAD WASHER MAKING GRINDING NOISE FOR AGITATION


When you put the motor in did you replace the coupler between the motor and transmission? When fixing the agitator you need to get the agitator repair kit, It has seals, dogs,thrust plate, cam bearing and seals. The upper agitator is supposed to move only in one direction to get the clothes to move down towards the agitator. Do not overload machine. I have one of these and after 12 years I finally had to install this upper repair kit because the upper agitator quit moving. You may have an agitate cam that is going bad inside the transmission

My agitator on my whirlpool washer doesn't work properly and that keeps the clothes from getting clean. it seems as something is loose,the bottom part works somewhat but the upper of the agitator's not...


The top portion of the agitator is designed to go in only one direction. The purpose is to keep the clothes moving from top to bottom of the basket. When this "ratchet" action fails to occur, it's due to worn "agitator dogs" (part # 80040) usually caused from overloading. It can be a do it yourself repair, or a very inexpensive service call if a professional is used.

Just spins during the wash cycle


Sounds like the agitator got dislogged during moving. In some machines the design allows for the agitator to move up and down alittle too much. Try this and this is only a guess. With the machine empty push down firmly on the agitator and move it back and forth as you do. You might hear a little "pop". If it does, try running the machine again. If it works problem solved, if not tell what happened.

Wheezing sound


The inside tub moves on the spin stage only and cause the water, by a centrifugal force, to be forced out of the clothes. During the wash cycle,the tub is stationary and the agitator moves forth and back. If you would like to remove the agitator - Remove the inner agitator cap (inside the top of the agitator) and then open the screw (be aware not to lose parts !) Good luck !
